DAGUPAN CITY – The provincial government of Pangasinan donated P1-million each to the calamity-stricken cities of Cagayan de Oro and Iligan.
Governor Amado T. Espino Jr. personally asked Vice Gov. Jose Ferdinand Z. Calimlim Jr. and the Sangguniang Panlalawigan to release funds for this purpose during the Media in Action forum held in Lingayen town.
“This is our way of helping our countrymen who suffered the wrath of typhoon Sendong,” he said.
City Information officer Orpheus Velasco, who personally went to Cagayan De Oro yesterday along with other Pangasinan officials to deliver the donation, said it is always good to help countrymen who are in dire need.
Cagayan de Oro City Mayor Vicente Emano expressed his gratitude to the generosity of Pangasinan and other provinces which donated help to his area.
“Thank you very much sa probinsiya ng Pangasinan, Hindi maliit na bagay ang isang milyon. Napakalaking tulong ito sa amin,“ Ermano said over a phone- patched radio interview.
The cities of Cagayan De Oro, Iligan and Dumaguete suffered the most during the massive flooding that battered Visayas and Mindanao Friday. Death toll reached almost a thousand.
Cagayan De Oro was declared under state of calamity Monday afternoon after the City Council passed and approved the resolution. (PIA-Pangasinan)
